Perth Arts Installation – Sheoaks, Shakuhachi, and The Doctor

Friday 7th July / posted by Chris Wheeldon

Tura New Music and The City Of Perth have just opened the 2017 Transmission Sound Art Installation Commission. Located in the Hay Street Mall, the installation seeks to create sound-based artwork delivered by sensor-activated speakers.

Local sound artist Dan Spriggs is featured with his new work, Sheoaks, Shakuhachi and the Doctor. Assisted by the shakuhachi - a traditional Japanese flute - the piece incorporates the ghostly sounds of wind passing through Sheoaks – the trees that once stood where the city now stands.

Dan’s exhibition will be running in the Hay Street Mall, opposite London Court, from now until the end of August.
